Help Our Media Center!

Alachua Elementary School

A school media center should be the center of learning in a school, but it also needs to be an inviting and comfortable space that encourages students to search for books, read, and learn. Through the generosity of others, we have recently added some comfortable seating to create inviting areas for students to read, and we would like to continue the improvements with some colorful new stools for the computer bank, as well as some bright new movable shelving to highlight new books and Sunshine State Young Award winners!
